In his speech on the occasion, Mr. Telfat welcomed the sponsored students and expressed his appreciation for their commitment and dedication in pursuing their university studies. He explained that the main aim of QP’s 2012 Summer Internship Program is to contribute in developing a well-trained and qualified national workforce, who will eventually join the country’s energy and industry sector.
